Family and Friends-
Remember we stumble everyone one of us stumble; that's why its a comfort to go hand in hand. --Emiley Kimbrough
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same --Flavia Weedn

I love support from those around me and I have wonderful friends and family. The first quote above reminds me of why we hold on to those around us because only with others comfort can we get through hard times. The second quote supports how people change our lives in a quick instint and that it doesn't matter how long you may know your family or friends but how they impact your life. I have been impacted by many of those around me. My husband has for one made a very strong footprint on my heart but besides him every single person in my life has molded and impacted who I am today. Nothing about life is easy but its those who are there with us to witness our lives as we witness theirs that makes each day worth living and sharing. So hold those around you close to you because they are the ones who get you through the hard times and support and cherish those around you because you are the one who gets them through their stumbles in life. Once again All in a Days Work.

New look on life

"Isaiah 40:28-31 NKJV) Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. {29} He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. {30} Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, {31} But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint."

I am praying for patience and to be healed. I got my phone call and I was right; I am moving on though and Dustin and I have talked about it! This was not the time for us right now and there maybe several reasons that are unknown to us. The bigger picture right now is our family who is grieving over their lost son. Please be with Seana, Casey, Olivia, and Ava during this time of sorrow. Please pray for them to have comfort them and for them to have peace. Dustin and I are not physically going to be able to be there for them this week but we will keep them in our prayers.

Last, we have a new start and know what we truly want right now. Thanks for listening to my sorrow today All in a days work.


I have been home sick for two days from strep throat and was sitting here thinking about how it would be fun to begin a blog. I feel much loss today discovering that my husbands cousin just lost her baby whom has been fighting for his life for several months now. I also feel my own loss in which will remain hiddeon from anyone because my heart has broken. I feel that leaving your life in Gods hands is important but it becomes so hard when you feel you are so close to so many things in life and then they go away. I am sitting here waiting for a phone call although I know the answer that will be behind that phone call and I believe that is what scares me the most. My body has failed me and that brings us to the stages of grief that many of my loved ones will be going through over the next several days:
And as we all walk through these stages at a different pace they are still stages that others may still struggle with for various reasons.
This is what life is about? Only each individual person can answer this question. For now all in a days work.
